Well, now I'm confused. I might have a reboot problem and not know
about it in the sense that I hardly ever reboot (I think the only linux
reboot that was ever required of me in the course of my usage of the OS
was after a kernel update).
Now you say rebooting requires and entails the exact same electrical
event as a poweroff? I don't quite understand. You mean that reboot
powers off the machine, and then turns it back on again immediately,
whereas a shutdown/poweroff simply powers the machine off?
I'm talking soft reboot here, "shutdown -r now".
You must surely be talking hard reboot? I turn off my machine once a day, at
night. There have been no problems turning it back on again, no hangs on
Sorry for leading you down this trail of confusion.
